Extracting high-quality ingredients from plant-based materials
“We want to stay on top of the developments in the food market and provide new types of plant-based ingredients that companies are looking for. Think of, for example, a highly soluble corn fiber for beverages or a functional pea protein for meat analogues,” explains Cécile Duputel, Corporate Public Affairs Manager at Roquette.
The Protein Cluster
Roquette has been a member of The Protein Cluster – an initiative of Foodvalley – since July 2021, and has decided to intensify its collaboration via a Foodvalley membership. “With its innovation fields Protein Shift and Food & Health, Foodvalley will provide us with a great opportunity to gain new insights and to identify potential new partnerships.”
In its turn, Roquette will bring 86 years of knowledge and expertise in the processing of plant-based materials, as well as an extensive global innovation network. “We have R&D labs all around the world, including France, the USA, China and Singapore, and can provide new perspectives on current expectations, such as regional flavors and nutritional profiles.”
